Empowering Girls on their Special Day

Today on October 11, Save the Children is celebrating the International Day of the Girl with millions of girls around the globe by sharing a story of a family who believed in supporting and empowering girls. Basmala*, twelve, and Habiba*, fifteen, are two sisters who joined Save the Children’s Speak Up campaign in Egypt, which aims to combat sexual harassment of adolescent girls in urban settings. They participated in skills building sessions on this issue which affects many girls in Egypt, and are involved in one of the campaign’s youth-led initiatives, where adolescents and youth design and lead actions to promote access to protections on sexual harassment and to raise awareness of reporting mechanisms for adolescent girls.
